A word from Delicias
Delicias Restaurant is the perfect setting to enjoy cocktails and dinner with family and friends. Whether its a casual lunch in the charming courtyard, cocktails on the front patio with live music, or a romantic evening in the cozy dining room, Rancho Santa Fe’s Delicias Restaurant promises a relaxed dining experience. The casually elegant ambiance and gorgeous décor set the stage for an enticing blend of upscale comfort food with influences of California cuisine. The menu offers classics like mesquite-grilled filet mignon and clever twists on mainstays such as macaroni and cheese by combining proscuitto, peas and black truffles in a six-cheese sauce. The lunch menu presents a host of fresh ingredients and light-dining options like spinach salmon salad with golden raisins, gorgonzola cheese and apple smoked bacon, drizzled with balsamic vinaigrette. With events like wine tasting dinners and the hugely popular Thursday Gourmet Burger Nights, Delicias has made dining a full experience.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Perhaps it's unfair to review a resto when one goes for restaurant week. They're crowded with newer diners, they have more assembly-line procedures.... but I digress. I was still expecting more. Luckily I went with the server recommendations, which I found much better - more moist and flavourful, specifically - than my companion's meal, which was dry and I felt more conceptual. Given the location off my beaten patch, I likely won't go out of my way to return."

  • "A wonderful restaurant in the village of Rancho Santa Fe with plenty of street parking and always lots of room during the week. Only complaint is that the menu is limited and doesn't change very often and the specials can be pricey and inconsistent. For example had rack of lamb...a special...it was very skimpy ..both chops and veggies for $39... I thought based on other menu items should have been in the $20s and more plentiful."

  • "Hadn't been in the area for awhile, so I didn't know what my choices were. I was very glad I picked Delicias to meet friends and spend the evening. The service was great. The menu had something for everyone from pizza to incredible white seabass. Will definitely be back to try other goodies on the menu and hang out at the bar."

  • "We requested a seat by the fire. When that wasn't available the manager setup a private table outside and built a wood fire for us. It was awesome. The food and wine were both outstanding and the service was great. We'll be back again!"

  • "We had another really great meal at Delicias the other night. The seafood pasta was delicious, and perfectly cooked. The sauce is delicious, and the seafood remains moist and tasty. Great dish. Thanks Bryan."

  • "It's the best restaurant I've found in NCSD. The food, service....everything is first rate. If word gets out it'll get busier. Love it and the people."

  • "A great spot since a 2012 renovation. We felt like we were the only folks in the place, yet it was St. Valentine's Day and our first experience with this establishment. Knowledgeable, friendly and attentive wait staff. Food was timely, well prepared and presented, and properly proportioned for an average metabolism and discriminating palate. Just down the street is a French Restaurant that is well known but resting too heavily on its laurels…go to Delcias."

  • "We stayed at The Inn At Rancho and decided to for go there restaurant and come down to Delicias. Loved the atmosphere. Very cozy and warm. The wine and food was delicious! I did get the Brussels sprouts with bacon. The chili –soup was also outstanding and my husband got the Caesar with white anchovies which he LOVED and the beef stroganoff. Over all we had a lovely evening in a lovely place and the service from Jason just fell flat. Very slow, a bit of a condescending manner and seemed to forget us a few times. It was Saturday night (dead when we arrived 6:30pm) and it did get a little busy but he seemed to be socializing while we were waiting for our wine or next coarse. It didn’t spoil our dining experience."

  • "We had dined at this restraunt many times. While the food quality has generally been good, the service and ambience has always been very good. However, we had not been there in about 6 months and it seems they have changed the lighting to brighten the restaurant, taking away all of the ambience. Also, the service was very poor. The waiters spent more time talking to eachother than attending to their tables and we had to wait to be seated in an emplty restaurant. The waiters just kept walking by ignorning us standing there. We then had to wait to order and then again had to ask 3 times for our check (after which our waiter stood around talking to other waiters). Will not go back This is too bad becauase the food was good."

  • "Wonderful dinner of the freshest ingredients prepared perfectly. I enjoyed the salmon encrusted with bacon (just a taste, not too heavy) with french lintels. Fantastic and attentive service throughout the evening!"

  • "the food was amazing, thus the rating of "fit for foodies" sadly the service was beyond poor. The waiter ignored us, forgot our food, never said sorry, stopped talking to us in mid-sentence and walked away, waved to others while speaking to use. We are from out of town and it really showed that locals get the service or large tables, not us. Brandon the manager took over in the end and made things better, but I'd not give a second change."

  • "A great neighborhood restaurant with exceptional food and wine, nestled in the village, Delicious has it all…except a sunset…."

  • "Reliable spot for well above average fare. Prices above average. Wine by the glass expensive and could be more noteworthy."

  • "started with vegetable salad and lobster agnoloni, both flavorful and fresh, excellent. salmon and beef stroganoff entrees highly recommended. i asked to replace the potato with their potato gratin, they quickly and happily agreed, no need to check with the chef. the stroganoff was great but could have had a creamier sauce. breads are delicious. service top notch. my only complaint is that the chairs are at least 2" too low for the table height. the tables should be lowered so that you don't feel like a little kid at the table."

  • "The restaurant and the service were nice but it was extremely over priced!"
    Dined on 12/27/2013
  • "I had a luncheon salad and the chicken was undercooked. I should have sent it back but by the time we ordered and our entrees arrived I was so hungry that I did not. Instead I just ate around the uncooked chicken breasts. The service was a bit slow although there were very few other tables of diners at the lunch hour. Bread had to be requested and refills of iced tea were also not offered but needed to be requested."

  • "Service and cuisine always very good. It was a quiet night which is unusual. Had stroganoff and short rib dishes with salad. Both were very good."

  • "I'm just a reluctant to rave too much about this restaurant. Mr. Molina's latest menu is incredibly inventive and comforting. This was my fourth visit to Delicias - one of two restaurants I have liked since moving to North County a few months ago. From the time one walks in, you're treated like a guest for a family dinner. The wait staff is attentive and accommodating. It's a gem. Shhhhh!"
